WPT Heads-Up Hold 'em
WPT Heads-Up Hold’em is a Texas Hold’em variant designed for all table game pits with a new free-to-the-player Bad Beat bonus feature. Players are pleased to find familiar Texas Hold’em betting patterns along with enhancements that give more power to the player.
Players are dealt two cards to make their best poker hand to player against the dealer’s best poker hand.
How to Play
Players must place two equal Ante and Odds wagers, and any additional side bets to begin the game. Additional side bets include the Pocket Bonus and Trips Plus wagers. After all initial wagers are made, both the dealer and the player receive two cards, and five community cards are dealt face-down in front of the dealer. The player can check or make a Play wager 3x the Ante. The dealer reveals the flop. The player can check or make a Play wager 2x the Ante. The dealer reveals the turn and river. The player can check or make a Play wager 1x the Ante. If the player folds at any time, the Ante and Odds wagers are lost, but the side bets are still in play. If the player makes a Play wager at any time, the dealer exposes all cards in the dealer’s hand and all community cards. The player and the dealer use the five community cards and their two pocket cards to make their best 5-card poker hand. The best 5-card poker hand wins and any side bets are reconciled.
- Trips Plus – wins odds based on the player’s first two cards and the 5-card community board.
- Pocket Bonus – wins odds if the player’s hole card hand is composed of a Pair or an Ace and Face card.
- Bad Beat Bonus – wins odds when the dealer beats the player, but the player’s hand contains a Straight or better.
